Take note of the following warning signs that youth may display if they are potentially involved with a gang.
Children and youth join gangs for many reasons including but not limited to seeking a sense of belonging, status, protection and/or wealth.
The following warning signs are behaviours that can be observed and could indicate potential gang or criminal involvement as well as the need for intervention services.
If you know a young person displaying any of these warning signs, learn more about the Surrey Anti-Gang Family Empowerment Program and the 11 early gang intervention programs available for young people and their families.
If you know a child who is exhibiting any of the above risk factors, consider making a referral to the Children and Youth At-Risk Table (CHART). CHART is a network of Surrey-based service providers that meet weekly to implement tailored intervention plans in order to support at-risk young people and their families.
